Only one other group which we passed on the first pitch. Very straighforward route and tons of fun. Just a little too short. Luckily there are other nearby routes and a sport climbing area near the top to fill the day. Lots of bolts. No need for gear despite what our guidebook said.
We hurried on the way down from the first cablecar and were first on the route, but no less than 8 teams piled up behind us. Just from the first cablecar! On the way down, I counted 7 people on the second belay...
Otherwise, amazing route, great climbing with gorgeous views, very well equipped. The 5c/6a grade is accurate.
I dont remember the exact date , the climbing was really amazing.
The 1rst pitch is definitly not 6a (I would rather say 5c+ or 5c and I followed the bolts) , the 4th pitch (crux) is athletic and strenuous (layback , crack) but is also very well protected (just like the rest of the route , really well protected). I loved it.
